Denver PrideFest has been recognized as one of the top ten Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual & Transgender Pride celebrations in the country! The CoorsLight PrideFest Parade is the highlight of Denver’s annual PrideFest celebration. The Center is proud to partner for more than a decade with CoorsLight and MillerCoors. One of HRC’s equality index top companies for the past five years and a pioneer in equal rights for their LGBT employees, funding from MillerCoors has helped us server our community for the past decade.

CoorsLight PrideFest Parade steps off at 9:30 am on Sunday, June 21 and marches from Cheesman Park to Civic Center Park via Colfax.
